I want to Thank all those that voted and made comments on my first entry. I agree with those that commented it was too dark. I entered this on the last day and essentially just did a Basic Edit. Levels, Crop, Brightness/Contrast, Saturation, USM and resize. I did clone to enhance that "eye glint", and in hindsight, I probably should have dodged some of the left flank to lighten it up. But, Live and Learn. Once again, thanks to all that commented.

Very good exposure, catching the expression and eye glint.

Oooooh. . .I LOVE IT!!! I love the sprinkles of grass on his face and fur. Makes it look even more "real" and 3 dimensional.

The coulouring and detail on his flank are stunning, it's been lost in and around his face which is a pity because this is a very iconic shot

Beautifully composed, but really needs to be lightened.

An interesting subject. This is lacking strong, sharp detail and tonal variation.
